Watch: Halestorm spoof ‘Rocky Horror’ in ‘Do Not Disturb’

Things are about to get a little frightening over at Camp Halestorm. On Wednesday (Oct. 10), the Pennsylvania-founded band unleashed the music video for their latest single, “Do No Disturb.” Instead of treating fans to an overly sexualized music video for the “naughty” track, the band decided to go in a different direction getting some inspiration from some Halloween staples like “The Rocky Horror Picture Show” and the Queen of Darkness herself, Elvira.

The three-and-a-half-minute clip begins with a couple who look like a bunch of “clean-cut, all-American” kids, stuck in the rain in the middle of a desolate area. They make their way to a creepy looking house hoping for some solace. Turns out that the place belongs to frontwoman Lzzy Hale (putting on her best Elvira impression) while the house staff is made up of the rest of the band.

Throughout the clip, the viewer watches as Hale takes the couple on a tour of the place, shows them to their room, and even helps them undress. Soon, the couple begins to notice that something is off about the house staff. First they cut the cord to the telephone so they can’t make a call. Then, they slip some poison in their drinks. Things come to a head when the staff begins to chase the couple around the house alla Scooby-Doo eventually corning them. Just when the staff thinks they have their victims in the palm of their hands, something strange happens.

“‘Do Not Disturb’ is based off a true story of mine about a very fun night I had overseas that all started with the pickup line, ‘I think we should make out,'” said frontwoman Lzzy Hale about the song. “And since it’s October… the boys and I decided to spooky-up the story with a few…minor exaggerations.”

“Do Not Disturb” is the third single off Halestorm’s recently released record, Vicious. Vicious, the band’s fourth studio album, was released in July.

In support of the album, Halestorm recently confirmed that they had extended their massive, female-fronted band tour with In This Moment and New Years Day. The newly added shows will begin on Nov. 16 at the Constant Convocation Center in Norfolk, Virginia and conclude on Dec. 16 at the Mahaffey Theater in St. Petersburg, Florida. The complete list of tour dates can be found here.

Listen: Halestorm drop raunchy new track ‘Do Not Disturb’

With the release of their fourth studio album just a week away, Halestorm have returned with one more new song to hold fans over until then. On Friday (July 20), the Pennsylvania-founded band released the third single off the impending record; a track titled “Do Not Disturb.” If the new jam seems to sounds a little raunchy then you are definitely onto something. As per frontwoman Lzzy Hale, the song is based on a true story and was not intended to become a Halestorm song.

“With only a few days to go before our album Vicious gets unleashed, we wanted to share one more song with you,” begins an email blast sent out to fans. “‘Do Not Disturb,’ is one of my favorite songs we wrote for this album. It is based on a true story (…so yes this actually happened), and it is not for the faint of heart. So, get yourself into a comfortable position, turn your headphones up…and Enjoy!”

Listen to “Do Not Disturb” above.

“Do Not Disturb” will join previously released songs “Uncomfortable” and “Black Vultures” on Vicious. Vicious is due out July 27 via Atlantic Records.

Pre-orders for the new album are still available on the band’s website hereVicious is the follow-up to 2015’s Into the Wild Life.
